Unlike some fans, Halo on Steam – taking time during his stream to explain why the franchise isn’t as popular as it once was.

Microsoft announced on March 12, during an Xbox Inside stream, that PC versions of Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Halo: Reach from 343 Industries would be available to purchase via Steam in the near future – with Reach, the series prequel, being the first game on offer.

While fans are obviously excited to be able to play the iconic Xbox series on PC, shroud isn’t quite sold – even though he will, of course, look to dominate opponents any time he dabbles in the game.

343 IndustriesThe MCC has been reworked specifically for a PC release.

After a fan asked him about the possibility of Shroud playing Halo, the streamer answered: “Yeah, sure. I’m like not as excited as you guys are. Like, everyone’s so stoked but I don’t really know why – that game is so old,” before pretending to fall asleep, implying that it is boring.

“Bro, like Halo is so fucking old nobody cares. I mean, that’s exactly why they’re doing it because everyone stopped caring about Halo, you’ve got to bring it back somehow,” Shroud added. “It’s a little bit of hype. I’ll still play it. Probably. Why not? 

“But, at the end of the day, Halo is Halo – there’s a reason why it’s not too fucking popular anymore. I think they’re too scared to innovate it.”

Shroud’s comments do hold some truth though, as releasing both the Halo MCC and Reach on PC could easily be a way to generate further interest in the franchises upcoming title – Halo Infinite.

While not a whole bunch is known about Halo Infinite, 343 Industries have already confirmed that the title will be available on PC and that more of the game will be showcased at the upcoming E3 event in June.

Until then, fans will have to tide themselves over with the nostalgia of playing games of Oddball on Midship.

YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC star Ben Askren are set to take to the boxing ring on April 17, but they’re already in a war of words ahead of the bout.

It’s no Conor McGregor, but Jake Paul is going big for his next boxing bout.

After taking down Nate Robinson with relative ease, the YouTube star turned hopeful boxer will take to the ring against Ben Askren on April 17.

However, in the lead up to the fight, the two have already thrown punches over text.

Ben Askren leaked DMs between the two on February 24, claiming “this next generation has some really bad role models.”

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”

While Askren ignored most of Paul’s questions, he had the final jab ahead of the bout.

“You gave up here like you’re going to give up in our fight. You don’t have the heart. Please don’t back out of our fight.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is locked in for April 17, and is set to be one of the biggest PPV fights in history.
